I tried this recipe this morning, I was hesitant at first but did it anyway, the egg cooked so I took the gobs out not sure how to avoid this the next time. They are good though. Will make them again for sure

Excellent muffins. They do taste like butter tarts. The golden raisins are a must in these muffins. I used ground pecans. I used a large ice cream scoop and got 12 nice sized muffins that baked up in 16 minutes. Thanks for sharing this recipe it has fast become our family favorite.

I have made these twice now as I love the flavor of them but I do think that I will adjust something next time to add more moisture to the batter as I find it very thick and definitely not pourable. The second time I made them I made sure I followed the recipe to a T so not sure what I may be doing wrong. Perhaps adding 1 cup of whole milk instead?
